Dentist told me today I need to have teeth extracted and get dentures. Most of my teeth on the top are not in good shape, bottoms are not that bad but he said I will loose them at some point in time. I'm 54 and needless to say not happy. He recommends extracting the back teeth - getting impressions made - letting the gums heal, then extracting the remaining teeth - 9 the first time and the rest about a month later and dentures put in that day. I've been reading posts, but still not sure. One of those things I guess you never thought you'd have happen to you.
